I have our 2012 Mother's Day Vintage Printable for you and it's a 'Mom's Sweet Confections Box'. I also have a fun tutorial showing how you can use the same image from the box to print labels for glass bottles and other keepsakes. Plus, all our old Alphabet Booklets have been marked down you can scroll down to see clearance pricing and links.
Here is our Printable Mother's Day Box Template and you just need to left click it until it gets as big as possible and right click the image to save it to a picture folder on your computer. You can print it on card stock or paper.
I took photos yesterday and planned to have this post up early but the photos turned out sooo BAD. Took more again today inside & outside to no avail, so Cindy cut out my boxes so you can see a bit better how pretty the Stardust Gelly pen looks that I used to outline the roses and the decorative designs. I also used a Gold metallic Pen to outline the label but it isn't showing up well either. Maybe it's time for a new camera.
You can stamp tissue to line your box and add chocolates, a piece of jewelry or a gift certificate. See this fab tutorial for stamping on tissue that Vicki did using our Dahlia stamp set! If you create anything - we would love to see photos! Ok, this photo is bad but can you see how I took the same image off the box and printed it on Clear Label Paper. They sell printable label paper at office supply stores and you can buy it at amazon. Look how cool this label photo project turned out by Kate from Censationalgirl
I wasn't thrilled with the way the glossy label paper looked on the bottle above as it's so transparent so tried adding some water with blue food coloring. Note - Lesson learned: Inkjet Label Paper will smear if it gets wet. Laser Label Paper is waterproof. Next, I tried the one sheet I had of Matt Label Paper and I like it better as the matte label sheets have a hint of opacity and the ink seemed to adhere better as you can see on the bottle below.
Here are some labels I printed on a Clear Glossy inkjet sheet using a page of pretty labels that will be on CD # 3.
I also love this old forget-me-not postcard with this poem. Here is the link to get it larger
This an old sample Vicki created a few years back with a photo of her sweet mom using letters and a label from our Divine Alphabet Booklet and all the Alphabet Booklets have been marked down to $1.50 each but if you call and order them in bulk you can mix titles and we can fit 63 in a Priority Flat Rate Box for $58.00 and we will pay the S&H! Here is a link to the titles left: Altered, Angelic, Boys, Girls and Divine.
Look at this beautiful card DT Member Michele Kovack created using our Love You Mother Stamp Set. on sale for $12.99. You can see more photos and get all the details here on Michele's Blog.
